Planned Giving

Missoula Downtown Foundation connects our community through commerce, heritage, culture, and living. The Missoula Downtown Foundation (MDF) is grateful to all of our donors who help Downtown Missoula realize its goals. The MDF Staff and Board of Directors see a desire to diversify giving opportunities and provide options for planned giving to individuals and estates interested in ensuring a bright future for Downtown Missoula.

What is Planned Giving?

Planned giving is the process of making a significant charitable gift during a donor’s life or at death that is part of his or her financial or estate plan.  Planned giving uses estate and tax planning to provide for charity and heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate.

Options for Planned Giving

Due to the generous and anonymous gifts of a prominent Missoula families, the Missoula Downtown Foundation was able to establish planned giving opportunities to those wishing to make a meaningful and long term impact on the future of our Downtown. Two planned giving funds are now available.
